Stanley Idaho. Population 68. A small town in Idaho up about 6200 feet in the Sawtooth Mountains. Pristeen, jawdroppingly beautiful. The word on the street (and bumperstickers) is to tell all your friends that Stanley sucks, so developers and hoards of folks choose another destination spots. I've had the privilege these last three years to have been invited to take part in a week long residency and write. Eight folks deep in their process sharing meals, stories, music, life. Heaven.Leaving is difficult to say the least. I hope to return as the geese do each year to build a new nest and participate in the cycle of life.
